Umbra Talent Show, Spring 2007 Edition

Last Thursday the Umbra Institute had the latest edition of the biannual Talent Show. Our growing enrolment meant  that even with a larger-than-normal venue (the University of Perugia’s 100Dieci Pub and Student Mensa), the hall was full to almost capacity.A number of Italian language classes put on performances, in addition to individual student acts.


Professor Mugno’s class sang a choreographed version of the Italian pop song “Cinquanta Special” and Professor Leonardi’s 201 did the same for “Azzurro.”The Italian Theater and Racconto classes joined up to perform scenes from the Cavalleria Rusticana, and there were a number of other musical performances (kudos to both Christopher Loo and Dan Gillespie), as well as an original dance by Jacqueline Starner.The Talent Show finished with a duet by Frank Seijas and Natalie Stephens (the latter will be performing at the Spoleto Festival dei Due Mondi this summer)
